Hi folks, we just got back from a short cruise onboard the NCL Sky. I have to say that I was over all impressed with the conditions to the ship. The Casino had new slots and they came out to win on the last night. So here are a few things that I will point out. 1. Ship, the ship looked really good after the refit We had good weather and we made all the stops. Being a casino guest really is a nice experience with NO waiting to get on the ship. The ship looks years newer the NCL Sky is again a treat to go cruising on. 2. Cabin, the cabin was really nice with all the new schemes and colors. They replaced all the doors out to the balconies and took out those nasty blue waffle matts with new flooring. Nice job NCL! 3. Dining, We had dinner at Cagney's and the food was excellent. The food in the buffet was average but hey, it was a 3 day cruise. The food in the main restaurant what good over all but my favorites was breakfast. 4. Entertainment and Activities, well we are talking about the NCL Sky here. The best party boat at the Port Of Miami!!! Pools side is great and the party never stops. The other passengers where having a huge good time and of course the "Free Drink Package" pays for it self over and over. For me I enjoyed the nights at the Karaoke in the big lounge up forward from 9:00 to 11:00pm. My over all activities was in the Sky Casino and the grand new machines paid out for me on Sunday night. 5. Service, we have cruised on NCL 12 times and the service is always EXCELLENT. From the moment we got to the Terminal to the last minuet stepping off the ship it was again excellent. My hat off to the Crew of the NCL Sky. 6. Port and Shore excursions, Key West was really nice but my all time favorite was Private Island, loved the water and the drinks. There were 8 of us in our party some had cruise before and some for the first time. They are all booking again for March 15 2020 sailing on the newest NCL ship, NCL Encore.
